I see you got rid of the aluminum edge trim but it does look like it would fit right into the 23rd century Star Trek world. I like that black panel look, very modern and futuristic at the same time. 10 points extra for styling! Good job Rick :)

The MAN himself! A big thanks to Steve Mavronis for etching the IDmark graphic for me - great job! Yeah, I had to trim the silver border, it would have fitted the (Eddystone) enclosures I usually use, which have square corners, but for this build I bought a black powdercoated 1590BB from Banzai (great price BTW) and it had rounded corners, so I had to lose the border to get the fit.

For this build I was going for a 1970's analogue synth type feel - hence the mix of red and green LEDs white boxes around the controls.

The wiring is a little messy, as I *assumed* it might need debugging, so I left them purposefully long. But it worked first time anyway. Actually, most of the wiring is hidden below the motherboard anyway, there's a second board hiding under there too. This was not a fun build. It has taken me 6 hours straight to wire it all up.

Major big ups to:

Steve Mavronis for etching the IDmark graphic for me.

Barry Bardell @ guitarpcb.com for making the PCB for me.

If you could layout the switches on to the board it may simplify this quite a bit. Go on Rick, I dare you :icon_rolleyes:
Haha!

Soundclip!!

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/967492/Sonic%20Death%20Ray.mp3


Crap guitarist >>> Tele Custom (bridge HB) >>> Big Muff (sometimes) >>> SONIC DEATH RAY >>> VJ Clone >>> Shure SM58 >>> Event Gina 24 >>> Wavelab.

Just trying to show all of it's features. The clean bits are just the phaser, with parity mod on it kind of sounds like a fast vibrato with a slow phase at the same time.

                                  Just heard this clip . Are you quite sure you didn't squeeze an old analog synth into the box ?
                                 

                                   Awesome is not a strong enough word !
